The seemingly-never-ending goodbye to the Spectrum finally started coming to an end Tuesday when the first wrecking ball tried really, really hard to break the facade of the aged arena.

That part was pretty comical. It took about a minute of bashing before any real dust started to fall.

So many games, so many shows ... so many SHOWS! I like to remember it with this one

That place is like a shrine - sorry to see it go ...

The beauty of JFK Stadium was that you didn't have to wait for a wrecking ball to take a chunk of the place home with you, it just fell on your head!
